July 1 in Chemainus

This is the parade scene in 1933

Parades have long been part of Canada Day celebrations, especially in Chemainus.

This photo is from the July 1 parade in 1933, along what’s now Old Victoria Road.

You can step back in time to see more great photos at the Chemainus Valley Museum.

It’s now closed for the season and reopening on Feb. 1, 2019.
